AFM in Biology.
A summary of techniques for advanced topographical imaging, sensitive force measurements and AFM in combination with optical microscopy.
Preparing Samples
From imaging in salty liquids to dealing with live organisms: methods for sample preparation that make AFM imaging possible.
A great discovery
on the small scale.

See how I made a small contribution in getting blue light out of simple silicon particles.
Exotic fields:
Forensic science
and AFM
Of the many different applications I have come across, this was one of the most fascinating: using AFM for crime scene investigation!

10⁻⁹ – Nano Consulting

Enabling Successful research

The nano-sphere is the fusion of the three big natural sciences - namely physics, chemistry and biology. For the past 15 years I was honored to support valuable scientific work in my position as an application engineer and scientist on behalf of one of the world´s leading scanning probe microscopy companies.

Through my professional and academic work (over 30 peer reviewed publications with 3000 plus citations and an h-index of 24) I have come across a vast variety of sample challenges, applications, training situations and unusual techniques, and I have visited hundreds of labs and users.

With confidence I can say I have an answer to almost any question you might have.
